NYS Law Regarding 6yr old being enrolled in Kingergarten or 1st Grade

Q:  Is there a law in new York State that requires a 5/6 yr old to be enrolled in Kindergarten assuming that child will not be home schooled?

A:  David's Answer:  To my knowledge, Kindergarten is not mandatory in areas outside of NYC (though I believe a couple of upstate cities, maybe Rochester and/or Albany, have just recently made it mandatory). You may double-check by calling the school district.  -- David Bliven, Westchester Family Law attorney (
